city in the country, and that's madness. >> it is madness right now. i mean, dc, in this city, proven that gun bans don't decrease crime, but increase crime. gun bans, lou, make law-abiding citizens less armed and criminals armed who don't buy by the law. the guns criminals use don't get them at gun shows; they are illegal guns they use. lou: the idea that gun control is the solution, the response, and the fact chicago, the murder capital of the world, people are reagenting and not talking about why are we not protecting our young, our vulnerable in public schools. why not security? they could be volunteers, paid security officers. they could be police, law enforcement officers. why not that discussion? >> i don't like the response at all, but something like this happens, the media says what can we do to stop this right now? that's the natural, i thnk, instincts on the democratic side. i'm not for gun control, but what happened today was such a horrible -- >> don't we have to have a dialogue about it? >> exactly. what -- i don't think that just anyone should be able to go buy a gun wi

, the street was abuzz with activity. hoboken city police, jersey city police, bomb squad representatives and the fbi. the reason was they were going into the apartment of ryan lanza who is the brother of the shooter, the suspected shooter adam lanza. apparently adam had his brother's i.d. on him when he went into the school and conducted the shooting. so authorities went right to ryan's apartment in hoboken, took him into custody briefly for questioning also questioned some friends who may have lived with him there. it was just a confusing situation. they removed some materials from that apartment trying to piece together exactly what happened. as the night wore on, the police presence became less and less, i think as they gathered more information and realized that may not have been the center of their interests, shall we say going forward. i'm standing in front of ali, also i should mention the st. rose church of lima where last night there was that candle light vigil. you walk inside the church here and there are two poster boards where people have already posted dozens and dozens of
